I agree with your assessment of Kumble's performances outside India as well as the comment regarding Chandra. By the way, Kumble is not my candidate for the best spinner ever from India , not even from those I have seen since 1960's :o)

He was a bowler I admired in childhood days. I have some fond memories of his Ranji Trophy heroics. He had a great First Class career, and for a long period outbowled anyone in Indian domestic circuit. If it wasn't for Mohammad Azharuddin, Chatterjee would've played more test matches than someone like Venkatapathy Raju. And yes, for a period I thought he was India's best spinner, better than Kumble - perhaps I was wrong.

"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
